'Thor: Love and Thunder' is all set to hit the big screens on July 8, 2022. As MCU fans wait to see their favorite superhero clashing with a new villain, they are equally excited to know about the songs that would be featured on the soundtrack.
Music plays an important role in every movie and considering that Michael Giacchino has returned once again following his successful collaborations with Marvel Studios, it is evident that the soundtrack will have a long list of hit songs. If you recall 'Thor: Ragnarok', Taika Waititi expressed his influence of rock music during his first go-around with the character since it featured songs like Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song".
